. i do not think that is religion specific. i think it is across the board. his relationship with israel, the muslim world. host: this is a financial times editorial today. general petraeus has been the mastermind behind using drugs to go after al qaeda in the horn of africa. but has been the world reaction to this kind of military strategy? guest: it's a controversial strategy, no question. the administration has doubled down on the use of drones. there are significantly more than a river were then in the bush administration. there is clearly rationale for some of this, but there are some issues about executive privilege in making some of these decisions. i do not think petraeus is the only person who has been a mastermind. there are many who feel strongly about this. i do not see policy changing, but there's certainly a feeling in pakistan, the horn of africa, and other places. in yemen, it was the morning after obama's victory that there was a draw on strike in yemen -- drone strike. you can call them a surgical strikes, but there are certainly casualties. it's a conversat
religion and state to celebrate holidays. it is best done on private property. jon property. >> this ends up being about bullies. what iit's about imposing a dynamic that you want to feel as though you belong in a society where you are a minority. and ultimately it's about trying to change the face of the majority to meet you because you can't adapt. i think that this nation is tolerant, and this is about a fully dynamics. >> they are not being bullies, they are asking for the same rights that christian groups had for 50 or 60 years. >> your goal is to push them out. >> tell christian groups to get more aggressive. put in more applications, it's an open process it treats everybody fairly. >> it's not all but,. >> it's not going to be about the dominant religion either. it's about free speech for everybody and freedom for everybody. >> which is brought to you by christianity, by the way. jon: the judge is hearing this case today. we'll see if she comes to some kind of accommodation that makes both sides happy. i don't know it doesn't look good right now. thank you both. jenna: in the meant
allowing a situation to deter youruate further and further a religion bore that will create more and more hatred and inability of the country to come together again? i am worried that we are not capable. we seem to be not capable at this moment to use the kind of zip sei -- diplomacy i think would be highly desirable top find buy to bring russia to work out a deal with us to find solution to go forward instead of saying no, no, no, and no again. so i think -- i just want to make the point that paula also made as wonderful as, you know, the modern tools are, the world will not allow us to get away with just tools. we will need to confront these situations, and i think the moment is here where it is overdue, it is extremely urgent to try to find a way that will end the killing in syria not only because it has canings for israel and other countries in indonesia, but because it sits, of course, a terrible negative example to others bad guys in this region and elsewhere who will be encouraged if they can get away with these types of behavior if we don't act. so i think this is a huge challenge
everything they taught me as far as religion and jesus christ, but i was interbreeding and likes to read and started getting into history and discovered that a lot of real history could not reconcile with what was in the bible. the question is, i discovered a series of books that mention, suggest perhaps that there really was no jesus christ. the historical records actually start almost two centuries after this character appeared, and it could possibly be something that was -- i mean, an invention, but have you addressed the fact that for 200 years so before there was writing about this, nothing appears, no letters from anybody, no graffiti, no correspondence between ancient peoples about this cheeses character. have you ever looked into this? why is everybody always take for granted that there is a jesus character, let alone the fact that he was a god or some other got? >> guest: i appreciate, sir. i will tell you this. these -- are there some things that are in my room and some that are out? i will tell you, we will look at any theory sometimes that are out there, but whenever you want
was doing on a day-to-day basis. when he was advertising on welfare reform and the war on religion, i think the republican superpacs you're probably thinking what on earth are we doing here? >> so what you're saying is they were -- they need to get better at not coordinating their campaigns? [laughter] >> it's not even a matter of coordination, it's a matter of strategic direction, and the romney campaign never had one. and on the obama side, it was pretty clear his campaign was about the middle class. and every single ad we ran was if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses. so i think there was a much clearer lane for us to swim in than on the romney side. were they supposed to defend against the bain attacks? were today supposed to bet -- get into the welfare reform game? it was unclear. >> look, though, you run a superpac. do you think they're good for america? >> no. i think a system where you can give unlimited contributions and in some cases not disclose who those contributions come from is not something that's particularly a good thing for the country. our view is that even though

changes -- than those who seek power and force others to obey their commands? why does the use of religion to support a social gospel and preemptive wars both which require authoritarians to use violence or the threat of violence go unchallenged? aggression and forced redistribution of wealth has nothing to do with the teachings of the world's great religions. why do we allow the government and the federal reserve to disseminate false information dealing with economic and foreign policy? why is democracy held in such high esteem when it's the enemy -- when it's the enemy of the minority and makes all rights relative to the dictates of the majority? why should anyone be surprised that congress has no credibility since there's such a disconnect between what politicians say and what they do? is there any explanation for all the deception, the unhappiness, the fear of the future, the loss of confidence in our leaders, the distrust and anger and frustration? yes, there is. and there's a way to reverse these attitudes. the negative perceptions are logical and a consequence of bad policies bringi

think that people have a right to not practice religion here. they have a right to do things the way they feel comfortable doing it, which is called secular or religious thinking. they have the right in this country not to follow religious law. for him to feel that he needed to resign over a scandal, i do not think that is proper when he does not have to follow religious thinking about sex in this country. host: thank you for the call this morning. here is the editorial from "usa today." host: diane, want to get your thoughts this morning on the democratic line. caller: i went to school with one of my friends in coronado, california. wondering if you are related to anyone from connecticut. host: not sure. what are your thoughts about the general's resignation? caller: let me tell you something, we came here when i was a, we came to a military base. my stepfather served in the first marines. also we went to camp pendleton and he was the commander of that unit for many years. at the veterans day to our veterans. living and deceased. and active, i should say. about the general, were we
